It’s that time of the year again. Summer time means travel time in the world of the professional mountain biker and it looks like I’ll be super elite flying status by the end of July. Let’s hope so anyways!

Tomorrow I’m off to Europe for two months. That’s a long time. I’m excited to go, yet it’s always bittersweet leaving the loved ones for so long. Sometimes I have visions of hiking through terraced olive groves and then other times I feel like I’m being drafted and sent off to battle…trying to stay injury free during the summer definitely feels like a battle sometimes!

Nonetheless, trips are always fun and the friendships that you make overseas are the best souveniers you could ask for! Hey cheesy line. Sorry about that.

In biking news, shot with Margus Riga yesterday in Victoria and he killed it with his new d3. Plug his name into the ol’ google and you will see some of his beauty work. I was pumped on the images that we shot. In other biking news, there is a profile on me in the July issue of mountain bike magazine. Check it out for me and let me know what you think because I won’t be around to buy a copy!

Happy trails,



About hellodarcy

I like bodies of water, piles of earth (the snowy or trail-laden type), two-wheeled human-powered machines, forests, waves and the things that ride them, powder days, Michel Gondry videos, trying to make videos like Michel Gondry videos, passing the pages of story books through my occipital lobe and into my cerebral cortex, cats (particularly mine), what's at the other end of a long plane ride, wandering, pulling paintbrushes over things, unknowns, going really fast, weightlessness, body moving, bobbing, music listening, music playing, the earth and all the people who borrow it from their grandchildren. I am a pro freeride mountain biker and I have a degree in Geography and Environmental Studies...soon to be outdone by an MA in Intercultural Communication. I also host and produce television shows. Please see my website for more details! Happy blog-reading.

One Response to Europa!

    Hi Darcy!

    If you stay in Europe some week I suggest you to go in Liguria. Finale Ligure is the best spot in nord Italy for freeride and downlhill: rich of trails, olives hills, and beatiful landscapes… All seasons!
    This month are opened also some bike park in the Alps: Bardonecchia, Sauze d’Oulx, Mongénève and Portés du Soleil in France. You can’t miss them!

    Have a nice trip in Europe!
